My other hobby is custom antique cars/motorcycles. A friend who is not a fan collector just got his custom car painted by another friend. I want to paint a fan for him in the same color and present it as a surprise gift. My budget is pretty tight, but if I can find something $100-ish I can swing it. I don't want one of the stamped-steel fans that are very difficut to remove the stators. Any suggestions?

Zephyr AirKooler
Picked mine up for 80$

Easy to take apart and put back together...even I could do it...

Easy to strip old paint

Custom colors easy and look great

Only draw back not very old and not BB BC

I think one of those would be perfect! His car is a mid 50s Buick.

I get that 58 Buick vibe from these R&M's.

They look nice with a custom paint job, too.

I have one of those Zephyr Aircoolers, too. almost the same.

They're super easy to work on because the motor is a separate unit inside the housing. I found a new motor for mine and use it all the time.

Cheers,
Bill

I believe these Zephyr Airkoolers use the Barcol Motors if I'm not mistaken...
